The International Dolls Museum has a large collection of dolls, which was set up by K Shankar Pillai, a political cartoonist. The collections of dolls are classified into two parts. One part consists of the dolls collected from western countries such as the United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, and Commonwealth of Independent States, while the other section consists of dolls collected from other Asian countries, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
